Can't get a JPEG with a .gim file to load

Hi --


I am trying to load several JPEG files into the Apollo catalog that have no georeference points.  Based on the tutorial on loading business data, it would seem that if I could generate a .gim file, it would load along with the JPEG and provide a reference point.  At least it did that with the fire hydrants. 


I have attached a .gim file called image1.jpg.gim that is alone in a directory with image1.jpg.  When I try to crawl the directory, nothing happens.  I suspect (hope) that the problem is that there's a syntax problem in the .gim file.  I've also tried changing the jpg references in the .gim to txt and the JPEG to txt, and it still doesn't load.  [Please note that because this board doesn't like files with extensions .jpg.gim, I've called it .gif.  However, what I tried to load is .jpg.gim]


Can anybody tell me [1] why the combined image1.jpg and image1.jpg.gim won't load and [2] what I have to do to the .gim file to make it work?

I cant see your attachments, but I hope this helps.


I just did a quick test using a non georeferenced jpg (DSC_0182.jpg) and a gim file (DSC_0182.jpg.gim) and it worked for me.


Here is my Gim file contents


<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' ?>
<item xmlns="http://schema.erdas.com/apollo/catalog"
     <description>Coke can sitting on my desk</description>
     <tags>Australia, West Leedervile, Hexagon Office</tags>
     <footprint srs="EPSG:4326"> POINT (115.838140 -31.941780)</footprint>
     <resource-url mimeType="image/jpeg">DSC_0182.jpg</resource-url>
     <icon-url mimeType="image/jpeg">DSC_0182.jpg</icon-url>



Documentation describing the use of GIM files is here https://hexagongeospatial.fluidtopics.net/book#!book;uri=39d06d76664a3355296cf4880b8180c6;breadcrumb...

Sorry for the delay, but we were in Washington for the March for Science.  Yes, this solved the problem!  Thank you.
